Petr Drkula - Mirrors


Published December 18, 2008


Petr Drkula (Czech Republic) released several albums on netlabels like Test Tube, AudiTong, Digitalbiotope, Abdicate Cell, Mahorka, Protoplazma. He experiments with a clean-cut range of digital and audio sound sources in minimal way with sense of purity and clarity of construction. In this production he frequently use arpeggiating, delaying, layering, shifting and breaking of a structure in all parameters.

"Mirrors" is a single, 41 minutes long composition. The whole piece is built upon a shifting motive of sharp, harpischord-like tones, varying in arpeggio, speed and pitch. If you need a comparison, Steve Reich’s work (like Drumming or Six Pianos) gives you a good impression and works with the repetitive moment in a similar way.

It's a very meditative work, which can make you calm and let you breathe deep.

Subject: mirrors - interesting idea, maybe needs more variety to sustain listener
Interesting concept and there are some nice arpeggiated chords amid all the melodic and tempo variation. Not exactly calming or mellow, as advertised, especially when the tempo gets going and the tones are sharp. Would have been nice to truly distort the harpsichord sound into something else, just for greater variety?
